>> nasty consequences. not just for the united states, but for the entire global economy, because the u.s. is such a big player. >> a lot's at stake, not only for this economy but for the world. so the president says he wants a deal in the next ten days.
11:01 pm
hello, i'm bruce johnson and thanks for joining us this sunday night. the good news is they're still talking. congressional leaders met with president barack obama for about an hour and a half tonight. the bad news, no deal that would raise the debt limit. matt joins us live from outside the white house. >> reporter: first, it's believed a deal would have to be reached by july 22nd or the u.s. would have to defacility on its loans for the first time in the u.s. history. for democrats and republicans say they don't want that to happen but tonight the question remains who's willing to compromise? despite the fact that another day has come and gone without a deal to extend the nation's debt limit, president obama says he remains confident that a deal can be done in time to avoid having the u.s. default on its loans. >> we can meet our fiscal challenge. >> reporter: a deal that would raise the country's $14 trillion dollar debt limit in exchange for a commitment to save roughly $4 trillion over
11:02 pm
the next decade. >> i know we can do this. >> reporter: but judging from the sound bites coming from both sides of the aisle, the president's optimism doesn't seem to be shared by many, if any other political leaders. >> some of this will come forward on sunday evening. >> reporter: house minority leader nancy pelosi says massive cuts in medicare and social security are simply off the table. >> we are not going to reduce the deficit or subsidize tax cuts for the rich on the backs of america's seniors and working families. >> reporter: while house speaker john baner continues to balk at the idea of raising taxes on wealthy americans. >> tax hikes on families and job creators would only make things worse. >> reporter: now baner is offering a compromise of sorts, floating the idea of saving only $2.4 trillion instead of $4 trillion in exchange for an agreement to extend the nation's debt ceiling and avoid having the u.s. default on its loans. >> i'm ready to roll up my
11:03 pm
sleeves over the next several weeks and months and i know both parties are ready to do that as well. >> reporter: after tonight's meeting ended at the white house, both democratic and republican leaders said they plan to meet with president obama again first thing tomorrow morning. bruce? >> matt, thanks a lot for that. now we're joined by maryland congressman chris van holland. he's also a member of the ranking house committee. thanks for joining us. i think we set it up, the lines drawn in the sand here, but where is this going to end up? >> august 2nd is a hard deadline. we've got to get some kind of agreement before then or as people said in the lead-in here, the economy will tank. the united states has never before defaulted on its debt. it's like everyone deciding not to pay their mortgage or any of their creditors. it would be a huge hit to the economy. what's frightening is our republican colleagues said if you don't give us a budget deal the way we want it, we will allow that default to happen. so we've got to overcome that. >> republicans seem to be dug
11:04 pm
in. no tax increases for anybody, including big businesses, which is what you want. my question is, are democrats, the president prepared to allow for a vote to increase the debt ceiling without the tax increases? will you take the hit on the budget cuts, on the spending cuts? >> what democrats are billing to do is have a clean vote on the debt ceiling to say we want to have a budget deficit package, but we're not going to hold the whole economy in the debt ceiling hostage to that. let's have a clean up and down vote. >> you're not going to get that. >> democrats are not the ones saying we're going to put the entire economy at risk if we don't get things our way. we're willing to say let's do this in separate packages. unfortunately our republican colleagues have said you've got to do it our way, but their way is unbalanced a little the president pointed out. >> baner backed off of the president's bigger picture, $4 trillion. now we're talking $2 1/2 trillion. it looks like all that would be spending cuts. not tax increases. they're saying no on the tax
11:05 pm
increases. would democrats go along with that? probably i know the answer to that, no. >> no. i was part of the biden talks and we made it clear from the beginning whether you do $2.4 trillion or $4 trillion package, it has to be balanced, just like every bipartisan commission has concluded if you're really going to be serious about the deficit reduction, you can't do it all on the backs of seniors. you can't slash education in the medicare guarantee. that's just a reckless approach. you need a balanced approach. and that is what we've said. and unfortunately, republicans have said they're more interested in protecting special interest tax breaks whether it's corporate jets, oil and gas companies, than getting this deficit under control. >> correct me if i'm wrong. it seems the president right now is between a rock and a hard place. he doesn't have any wiggle room. he can't allow the country to default. okay? you've got to raise that debt ceiling. he's got to get that done one way or another. is that not correct? >> well, we absolutely have to do it and you would hope our republican colleagues would
11:06 pm
understand that. and i think in their moments behind closed doors, the republican leaders recognize that, but we've got like a tiger by their tail, because they've got a whole tea party element in their caucus. >> what's the risk for republicans? we know the risk for the president. he's already in trouble because of the economy. what's the risk for the republicans, taking a hard line position of no tax increases no matter what, even if it jeopardizes the debt ceiling. >> well, the risk really is for all of us as americans and what would happen to the economy. now, with respect to the republicans, i think the president has demonstrated that he's willing to compromise. he's put on the table some very tough issues, and he said, look, just meet me halfway. not even halfway. the president said the great majority of this package is cuts, so you've got to do tax loopholes. >> does he have a hammer to address the nation tomorrow? >> i think tomorrow the president will appeal one more time to the nation to say call upon the congress, call upon everybody to be willing to not just take, take, take, but give
11:07 pm
a little, because compromise for the good of the country requires that. >> congressman, thanks a lot for coming in. >> good to be with you. thanks. 9 news, stick with us for the latest developments regarding the debt ceiling debate. tomorrow morning representative van holland will be on the early show to talk about the negotiations. a 16-year-old boy is being credited with saving the lives of his neighbors after a fire struck an apartment building in alexandria. the teen went into action getting everybody out safely. lindsey mastis talked to the young hero. >> reporter: when firefighters got here, they were relieved to see that everyone inside this apartment was out. it's unusual, because the fire started around 3:00 a.m. when people were sound asleep. that was the time 16-year-old brandon presley was getting home from the movies. >> i went in the building. i pulled the fire alarm and started banging on everybody's door saying wake up, wake up, wake up. >> reporter: brandon says he worked on waking everyone up

inside his building. then he went outside and woke everyone up at the next building and even this building. he said he wasn't going to stop until he knew everyone was outside and across the street at the playground. >> kick in doors, making sure everybody was waking up, knocking on windows. >> reporter: he had to wake up his mom. >> mom, it's on fire, it's on fire. >> reporter: when he got her to safety. >> she forgot her phone, so i had to run back in the house to get her phone. >> reporter: it took 60 firefighters 40 minutes to put out the flames, but they didn't even know there was a fire until this woman called 911. >> i was sleeping and started coughing. >> reporter: first she got her 4-year-old daughter to safety. >> my mom waked me up and i saw the fire up the house. >> reporter: then she started knocking on doors, too. by the time the fire was out, there was more than $100,000 worth of damage, everything can be fixed. brandon hopes that's soon so he can focus on his dreams. >> my dream is to go to college, become an accountant. i want to go to george mason.

11:17 pm
wind, but it is over now. subtle change is already underway. we're keeping the skies clear tonight which is a good thing. as we head into tomorrow, things will start to change for, i guess, the mugginess and at least the air quality going down a bit. temperatures have gone down quite a bit since sunset. we're sliding down into the 80s and most of us are into the 70s, including 79 in arlington. 82 still in the city center, but even down into the middle range 70s off toward the south and east. in all, it's going to be a pretty decent night overnight tonight. mainly clear skies. moonlight and a lot of stars out there. we will see the possibility for more heat and humidity building in gradually throughout the day tomorrow. we're starting out the morning with a bit of a haze. air quality definitely suffering tomorrow with a code orange alert already in place. if you're one of the sensitive groups, you want to limit your time outdoors tomorrow. then i'm tracking a mini heat wave on the way. we're going to slide into the upper 90s to start the work week, and then get a little bit
